Yorkshire is the largest county in the UK (half the size of Belgium to be exact and has a population as big as Scotland's!) and has been "divided" into sections: North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire.  

It borders County Durham, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Lancashire and Westmorland.   

Yorkshire is a county with a strong character and identity of its own, with the ancient city of York in the centre of the county.  The 3 largest cities in Yorkshire are Leeds, Sheffield and Bradford. 

The landscape is stunning, with brooding moors and green dales rolling down to a dramatic coastline, Yorkshire has some of Britain's finest scenery.  

Yorkshire's simply breathtaking countryside has also been the inspiration for many acclaimed novels, including Emily Bronte's 'Wuthering Heights' and James Herriot's 'All Creatures Great and Small'. The stunning scenery has also provided the perfect location for countless films, from "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves" to "Dracula" and "Calendar Girls."  

Yorkshire has two complete National Parks within its boundaries: the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors.  Together they attract around 20.3 million visitors per year. The superb Peak District, proud to be Britain's first National Park, is an ideal place to visit in South Yorkshire.

But don't take our word for it!
